    Depends on how fancy you want to get. Homedepot has the stick on type with #'s, standard stuff. Or, you can go to an electrical house and buy a vinyl printer like Thomas and Betts that will print whatever you want on a sleeve. You can get these in shrink vinyl that look really cool. You'll end up spending a couple hundred bucks for this setup. I've seen them on ebay for cheaper. Good luck.

    Check on summit, or Best buy, I would be willing to bet Fry's has them. You are looking for some shrink ones right?

    What did terry think? I can do some other samples if you are interested, also, I figured out how to save as annother format for samples instead of printing and scanning.

    Buy light colored shrink sleeve and a fine line black permanent sharpie, and write neatly.

    The printers that make printed shrink tube are really slick. We use them all the time at work. They are pricey.

    I've seen lots of wiring with cheap stick on label maker decals under clear shrink tube. Looks great!
